Hay Fever

Hay fever, is known as allergic rhinitis. This type of allergy results in symptoms of cold or flu; sneezing, sinus pressure, runny nose, and itchy eyes. The difference between hay fever and general ‘colds’ is that the allergy isn’t affected by a virus. Rather than a virus, hay fever is a n allergic reaction to outdoor and indoor allergens like cats, dogs, dust, pollen, or many other sources of allergens. Usually, the peak period for hay fever conditions occurs during the warmer months of the year.

Like other allergies, hay fever can be hereditary. This means you may develop hay fever if members of your family also have allergies. It is also common for people with asthma or eczema to develop hay fever. Hay fever may result in immune system attacks from a harmless and typical substance within the environment.

Hay fever is most likely to be seen in people with:

  • Asthma or other allergies
  • Eczema
  • Parents or siblings with allergies
  • A place where you are regularly exposed to allergens
  • A mother who smoked before your first birthday

Usually, hay fever develops before the age of 20, but there isn’t a specific age restriction; anyone may get it at any age. While there are some conditions and circumstances that makes us more prone hay fever, there is still potential for everyone with any background to suffer from hay fever.
